pith  (pĭth) n.

the soft, spongelike, central cylinder of the stems of most flowering plants, composed mainly of parenchyma.

-the soft inner substance of a feather or hair.

-the essential or central part; the heart or essence.


Pith is a journal that collects and displays experimental bits of writing. We define “experimental” as something akin to a deep breath of uncertainty; an inclination to remain lost when certainty is calling. Visual/written hybrids, avant-garde poetry, multi-genre, erasure, and anything that defies classification.

Each issue “theme” is pulled from one of Emily Dickinson’s poems and is chosen, fortune-teller style, just before an issue goes live.
